history

The Collections of the seventies and eighties, are born from the personal desire of Cleto Munari, to create different objects, from those, the big names in the luxury market proposed. Their objects were of classical stylistic expression, which, over time, substantially did not renovate, perhaps because, linked to rigid laws of the market, not available to counteract business risk, regarding research and experimentation. In those years, in fact, the world was changing rapidly and Cleto Munari felt that this change would also involve the luxury sector, especially jewelry, watches and silverware; why not give these objects a chance to be themselves witnesses of a rapidly changing world by offering creative forms, innovative, and why not, even risky, giving a chance to each of us of the opportunity to recognize ourselves in what we own, and we wear?

The silverware of the seventies and eighties, collected by Cleto Munari clearly testify to his passion for this precious metal, also fueled by the great Venetian master Carlo Scarpa, who had contributed to the collection, with his own plans and his own enthusiasm. In fact the works of Carlo Scarpa are still today the silverware which Cleto Munari feels most affectionate: cutlery, pitchers, carafs, vases, trays – all masterpieces entered, by right, in the permanent collections of many museums in the world.

The four watches in gold and diamonds, produced in very few pieces and drawn by H. Hollein, M. Graves, E. Sottsass and A. Isozaki collect the invitation extended by Cleto Munari to realize, each of them, a watch that was the expression stylistics of the culture of their home countries. An extraordinary idea, that the four architects greeted with enthusiasm, achieving four top quality watches.

The glasses, made by Cleto Munari in the last twenty years, represent the constant research of new stylistic expressions of glass forms, for which he has used the collaboration of some artists and designers from around the world, inviting them in its glassworks in Murano to “blow” the glass themselves.
“Micromacro”, “The 12 Veronese”, “Corolle d’Autore”, “Acque (Waters)” are the names of some collections created in recent years.

The jewels realized in the seventies and eighties are the result of continuous stylistic research pursued by Cleto Munari, who invited the most brilliant minds in the world of architecture, belonging to those years, to work together, involving them, on purpose, in a context for them, completely new, but no doubt, of great attractiveness.
Two hundred and fifty incredible jewels, different from each other, and in which, the authors, are freely expressed, in full autonomy and creativity.
